Tell us about your family business (What you do, how you started, who’s involved etc)
Established in 1982, Unicomp Ltd is a second generation family business situated in the IT service industry. During 2014, the key shareholder/owner of Unicomp, Mike Burgon, retired from his executive duties requiring the business to take the next step in its growth and leadership. In 2015, a strategic plan was agreed and communicated to the business by the second generation executive family directors, Mike’s daughters, Tina and Kim.
What’s your proudest moment/biggest achievement as a family business?
What has been achieved is a transformation in the way the business is managed and the way it operates leading to the highest turnover and profitability yet and laying down the foundation for future sustainable growth. The business is led by family members but the style of management is participative with a culture of sharing and understanding the needs of individuals as one would in a family.
What do you love about being a family business?
We love the way that the core values of a business are a reflection of the core values of a family. Each and every employee is treated with the same respect as a family member and in return, our employees give Unicomp the loyalty, honesty and dedication needed to successfully run a business.
